NM busts driver’s license ring

Vol. 121, No. 136 75¢ Daily / $1.25 Sunday



LOS ANGELES (AP) — Ray Bradbury imagined the future, and didn’t always like what he saw. In his books, the science fiction-fantasy master conjured a dark, depressing future where the government used fire departments to burn books in order to hold its people in ignorance and where racial hatred was so pervasive that some people left Earth for other planets. - PAGE A6

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — New Mexico authorities on Wednesday detailed what they called a “recipe for fraud” as they announced the bust of a sophisticated ring that specialized in helping illegal immigrants obtain fraudulent driver’s licenses. The recipe included reams of fraudulent documents — from rental agreements to bank statements, vehicle titles and insurance paperwork — that were used as proof of residency to obtain licenses in at least 54 cases, authorities said. The probe is continuing,

and authorities said during a press conference that investigators believe hundreds of licenses have been fraudulently obtained through the ring over the past couple of years for illegal immigrants living outside of New Mexico. Arrest warrants were issued for nine people. Demesia Padilla, secretary of the state Taxation and Revenue Department, which oversees New Mexico’s Motor Vehicle Division, said her concern is that the stories about vanloads of illegal immigrants being brought to New Mexico from as far as Florida and

Illinois for driver’s licenses will continue until the state Legislature takes action. Padilla charged that the Legislature has created a “mess” by not repealing the law. “We need to end the issuance of driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants, and until we do that, we’re going to leave ourselves open to this type of fraud and this type of crime,” she said. Gov. Susana Martinez has repeatedly pressed state lawmakers to repeal New Mexico’s law over See LICENSE, Page A3

In return for their active duty, area veterans have one humble appeal: to be taken care of at a clinic close to home. With recent news that after 12 years they still won’t be provided with this service, the veterans are fuming and not entirely sure what to do about it. “We have taken veterans from World War II, Korea and it’s a hardship on them to drive to Albuquerque. It’s a hardship for them to get out of a van after three hours. It’s just not right. Last year we took over 1,000 vets. We shouldn’t have to be doing this. We shouldn’t have to be carrying our veterans over there. That should be something the government should

Horses: Stock or pets? Experience The Roswell Experience ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Emaciated horses barely clinging to life at a New Mexico auction house, their last stop before a lengthy trip to a slaughterhouse south of the border, give credence to grim tales from around the Southwest.

People unable to afford the rising cost of hay, dumping their horses on the side of the road. Tens of thousands of wild horses roaming public and tribal lands, stripping droughtplagued landscapes and draining stock tanks. As horse rescue operations struggle to keep up with a growing number of neglected, abused and starving animals, a Roswell businessman has filed an

application to open what would be the first horse slaughterhouse to operate in the United States in five years. The proposal by Valley Meat Co. owner Rick De Los Santos has reignited emotional debates over what constitutes humane treatment of horses, and how best to control an exploding equine population. Perhaps the most divisive question of all is whether the noble, iconic animals that played a key role in the settling of much of America are livestock or pets. “It’s probably the most See HORSES, Page A2

It’s really hot out there for pets, too Firefighters use burnouts to corral NM wildfires JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER

Roswell Animal Services Supervisor Joseph Pacheco wanted to remind people to consider the health and safety of their pets. “We are getting a lot of phone calls for welfare checks on dogs that have been left inside cars at Walmart, Kmart, Target and even the courthouse.” He urged people to leave their dogs at home. “We really do live in a desert. I can understand if it’s a long trip, but if

you live here, why take your animals out in the heat?”

Pacheco recommends if it is absolutely necessary to bring an animal when running errands to leave the windows cracked, carry water in the car for the animal and limit any store visits to less than 15 minutes. If possible, park in the shade, but better still, leave the dog at home. Studies indicate that even with the windows cracked on a 70- to 80-degree day, a car can heat up to temperatures in excess of 100 degrees

within minutes. Dogs get rid of heat by panting. Dogs with thick double-coats have a harder time beating the heat. Owners may want to consider getting fur clipped on long-haired dogs and those breeds which are better suited to a cold environment, like Siberian huskies and Saint Bernards. Pug-nosed dogs like bulldogs, pugs and boxers, have smaller airways, and therefore have less of an ability to expel hot air. Even at home, shelter

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Firefighters working in different parts of New Mexico are using similar tactics to corral two lightningsparked wildfires.

Crews contained more than 20 percent of the massive Whitewater-Baldy fire in southwestern New Mexico by Wednesday. The blaze has charred about 412 square miles of the Gila National Forest.

Firefighters are building lines and mopping up after burnout operations along the fire’s perimeter. On the southern flank, they fin-

ished prepping cabins for potential fire movement. In northern New Mexico, fire managers say burnout operations are helping with the Bear Springs fire. That blaze has burned about 580 acres. Forest officials say cultural and historic structures on the southern edge of the Jemez Mountains are considered threatened. Crews are also battling the 320-acre Colorado Peak fire southwest of Santa Fe. It was sending up a large plume of smoke Wednesday evening.

polarizing issue the horse industry has had to face in a long time,” said Ward Stutz, senior director of breed integrity at the American Quarter Horse Association in Amarillo, Texas, one of a number of livestock and horse groups that support a return to domestic slaughter. “Let me just say it this way,” he said. “We believe it is the owner’s right to determine what is in the best interest of their horses. We recognize that there is a lot of abandonment and neglect, therefore we believe that horse slaughter should be available.” Many animal humane groups and public officials

are outraged at the suggestion, including Gov. Susana Martinez. “A horse’s companionship is a way of life for many people across New Mexico,” Martinez said after the proposal became public earlier this year. “We rely on them for work and bond with them through their loyalty. I believe creating a horse slaughter industry in New Mexico is wrong, and I am strongly opposed.” Supporters of horse slaughter point to a June 2011 report from the federal Government Accountability Of fice that shows cases of horse abuse and abandonment on a steady rise since Congress effectively banned horse slaughter by cutting funding for USDA inspection programs in 2006. But a bill passed last year authorized the USDA to resume horse slaughterhouse inspections, prompting the appli-

The state’s other eight licensed rescues are also above capacity, and have been for years. De Los Santos said he is just trying to revamp a family business to meet demand. He said there is a healthy market for horse meat, which is consumed by humans in a number of countries in Asia, Europe and South America and is used in pet food. He said he followed all USDA instructions for converting his slaughter floor for horses, but has been told no action will be taken on his application this year because of the issue’s volatility in an election year.

Blodgett left behind all his personal belongings, along with his home and his car. Police detectives said at the time that they had uncovered no signs of foul play. RPD spokesman Cmdr.

Of the nine warrants issued, two people have been arrested and two others have agreed to tur n themselves in.

The alleged ring leader, Luis Raul Collazo-Medrano, his wife, Olivia Esther Roswell, has been awarded a new lease for its community-based outpatient clinic. This clinic, the letter reads, “will have expanded and improved space which will provide greater access for Roswell and Artesia veterans.” It remains unclear why Roswell was not the chosen locale for the clinic. For 12 years, and under four VA leaders, John Taylor, who writes a veterans advocate column for the Daily Record, has fought for a clinic to service the 5,000-plus veterans who live in this area. Taylor has received four letters, all refusing this request. “They’re building a brand new clinic in Artesia ... Why is it that we didn’t get to bid on the new clinic? They didn’t even come to us or approach us,” Taylor said. He indicated that the decision ultimately seems political. Attendees presented added complexities, such

And people around the world who can’t go to these locations can tweet to the people, some of these leaders, and ask for the code. So you might meet people from all around the world in this way.” Airhart recently oversaw the construction of a crop circle at Graves Farm and Garden, one of the game’s 32 locations. Airhart said the crop circle, which is about 400 feet in diameter, is an example of how transmedia brings “real world elements into a story.” man shepherd and I keep a wading pool for him.” Dogs are much more susceptible to heatstroke than humans. The symptoms of heatstroke include, panting, unresponsive behavior such as the refusal to obey commands, and warmdry skin. It can progress to rapid heartbeat, vomiting and eventual collapse.

Several applicants also were using the same addresses in Clovis and Portales as as medical personnel must often wait for long periods of time to get paid for treating veterans. One problem prompted particularly impassioned responses. Harry McGraw, SENM Chapter 968 president, said area cab services that transport veterans who have Medicare charge Medicare $400 per individual.

Although a call to action was made, no one was quite sure how to respond. Some suggested signing a petition, others opted for Gov. Susana Martinez’s help and one gentleman requested that each veteran write a letter to President Barack Obama, as it’s an election year. The overriding sentiment was that the veterans need to keep meeting. “If we have to march, we’ll march,” one woman said. “Ain’t the first time,” a voice in the crowd responded.

Although fictional, the story does include some real people and events from around Southeastern New Mexico, Airhart said. “We’re trying to tell some historical facts from around the area. ... And I hope they actually go to some of these museums and learn a lot about the history. I think a lot of people who live in Roswell don’t always do those things, and they kind of take it for granted. ... “This, for me, is my passion; I love telling stories, and when I got into the whole transmedia thing, I felt like this was the future of storytelling, in a sense.

It was a phone call from a Brazilian woman living in Georgia inquiring about her license that unearthed the scam, 9th Judicial District Attor ney Matt Chandler said. The woman told authorities she agreed to pay Collazo-Medrano $4,000 for a driver’s license. The scam involved her flying to Amar-

A hold was put on the license due to fraud suspicions. The woman demanded her money back, and Collazo-Medrano allegedly told her that he didn’t need her money since he was making $30,000 a month getting fraudulent licenses for others. Chandler said the investigation is focused on those

State officials said they are working to revoke the 54 licenses that were connected to the busted ring.

Drug abuse a hot topic in workers’ compensation talks

The Workers’ Compensation Administration is suggesting yet another attempt to change the statutory language relating to workers who get injured while using drugs or alcohol. Meanwhile, the workers’ compensation community is mor e and more concerned about workers who get addicted to drugs as a result of their injuries. The question of whether benefits should be barred for workers who were intoxicated has been a political hot potato for decades. The public is outraged when a worker who got hurt while drunk or stoned gets workers’ compensation benefits. Prior to the 1990 reform, the law said that if drugs or alcohol were the sole cause of the accident, the claim could be thrown out, but ther e was no consequence if intoxication was a partial factor. The 1990 Workers’ Compensa-




tion T ask Force, which overhauled the statute, battled over the issue but could not reach agreement. Labor leaders argued that a worker’s family should not suffer because the worker made a mistake. The task force left the old provision in place and created a follow-up task force, which struggled valiantly and arrived at a recommendation that nobody else liked, so it was never even introduced in legislation. In 2001, an amendment was enacted that was supposed to say that if drug or alcohol use

was a partial factor, the worker would lose 10 percent of benefits. The bill came from the Gov. Gary Johnson-era Workers’ Compensation Advisory Council. Their intention was to base the penalty simply on evidence of use of drugs or alcohol, with no need to prove causation. On its way thr ough the process, the language was badly garbled. The enacted language led to a confusing standard of partial causation and lots of litigation. It has been a problem ever since. At a recent meeting, the WCA suggested to a new Advisory Council that this should be revisited. Meanwhile, the industry is deeply worried that injur ed workers are tur ning into pill addicts in record numbers. It was on everyone’s lips at the recent annual conference of the New Mexico Workers’ Compensa-

Roswell Daily Record

tion Association. Drug testing has long been a part of the system. As a sign of the times, the testing companies are offering tests for new kinds of deviant behavior. When a workers’ compensation patient has a prescribed dose of opioid painkillers, they can test that the patient is not supplementing that dose with cocaine, other prescription meds, or anything else. They can also make sure that the patient is taking the prescribed dose and not less — in other words, that he’s not selling his pills on the street. Medical evidence shows that non-addictive, less expensive drugs like Tylenol are often just as effective, but claims adjusters complain that they can’t stop doctors from writing prescriptions for opioids. The talk in the conference hallway is that doctors ar e lazy, or maybe the

patients demand these pills and doctors comply because it’s easier than spending time educating patients about the risks of addiction. I argue that maybe it’s because the fee schedule doesn’t pay the docs to spend time doing this. The workers’ compensation system can’t afford to push doctors around. It is said to be harder than ever to find doctors willing to take workers’ compensation cases. The drug issue is just part of the problem. Doctors can’t stand the extra paperwork, long delays for insurance approvals, and the threat of having to testify in litigation. It’s as if we hadn’t had 22 years since our famous big r efor m to figur e out how to make the physician’s role in this difficult system less frustrating.

Space race goes commercial

Chin up, space buffs. Stop mourning the end of America’s shuttle program and start celebrating the beginning of the next great adventure — a for-profit space race led by young entrepreneurs who want to hurl rockets skyward more efficiently than the federal government ever did. Last week, a capsule built by the private company SpaceX was launched into orbit from Cape Canaveral and later docked with the International Space Station, where its cargo of supplies was unloaded. The capsule, called Dragon, was packed with science gear and sent home for a splashdown in the Pacific. SpaceX is short for Space Exploration Technologies Corp. Its boss is billionaire Elon Musk, who’s 40. The average age of its employees is 30. And they’ve made history. “Although cargo hauls have become routine,” The Associated Press reported after the Dragon docked with the space station, “Friday’s linkup was significant in that an individual company pulled it off. That chore was previously reserved for a small, elite group of government agencies.” In fact, SpaceX could be a blessing for those formerly “elite” agencies. The company is contracted to make a dozen delivery runs. In three or four years, it could start ferrying astronauts into orbit so they won’t have to keep flying with the Russians. Meanwhile, other private companies are designing and testing spacecraft, hoping to go into business with orbital supply flights and even space tourism. NASA is encouraging these ventures — it gave $381 million in seed money, for instance, to SpaceX — while setting its own sights higher, on future trips to the asteroids and Mars. The romanticism of space exploration never ended. But from this point forward, it will be shared by private firms whose CEOs and investors believe they can make money in orbit.

Today is Thursday, June 7, the 159th day of 2012. There are 207 days left in the year. Today’s Highlights On June 7, 1892, Homer Plessy, a “Creole of color,” was arrested and fined for refusing to leave a whites-only car of the East Louisiana Railroad; his case went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, which at the time upheld “separate but equal” racial segregation, a concept overturned in 1954 by Brown v. Board of Education. On this date In 1654, King Louis XIV, age 15, was crowned in Rheims, 11 years after the start of his reign. In 1712, Pennsylvania’s colonial assembly voted to ban the further importation of slaves. DEAR DOCTOR K: What could be causing my chronic laryngitis? And what can I do about it? DEAR READER: Laryngitis is an inflammation of the larynx — the “voice box” that contains the vocal cords. The condition is called chronic laryngitis when hoarseness, the most common symptom, lasts for at least two weeks. Chronic laryngitis isn’t caused by infection. Among adults, the most common causes of chronic laryngitis are: — Voice abuse or misuse: Talking too much or too loudly. — Smoking. — Drinking alcohol heavily. — Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD): Stomach acids flow backward (reflux) into the esophagus and throat, irritating the vocal

Uncertainty creates economic paralysis


President Obama would do us all a big favor if he’d ask himself this: “Would I start or expand a business without knowing what regulations or taxes government will impose next year?” If he’d just stop and ask that, he’d have a sense of what’s wrong with the economy. He’d understand why a country that must create 120,000 new jobs each month just to absorb newcomers created only 69,000 last month. Past recoveries were quicker. Something is dif ferent.

What could it be? Let’s remember that the economy — which is to say, us — is already burdened by byzantine bureaucratic impositions. Every week, the feds add another thousand pages of rules and proposals for rules. Local governments add their own. My mayor, in New York City, even proposes micromanaging the size of the drinks restaurants may sell. On top of the existing mountain of red tape, the Obama administration has piled on more, with more to come. Obamacare was less a specific prescription than a license for the Department of

medications, including antihistamines and cough suppressants, can cause hoarseness. Your doctor will examine your mouth, throat, nose, ears and the lymph nodes in your neck. He or she will carefully examine your larynx. Additional tests may check for acid reflux. Hoarseness that doesn’t go away or keeps coming back can be a symptom of certain cancers. Cancer of the vocal cords can occur. Also, sometimes an enlarging lung cancer can pinch the nerve that controls the muscles of the vocal cords. When my patients have a hoarseness that persists, I send them to an ear, nose and throat specialist. That specialist has special equipment that lets him see the vocal cords directly. Cancer

Then there’s Dodd-Frank, the 2,300-page revamp of finance industry regulation. Again, the bill left the rulewriting to regulatory agencies. Who knows what they will come up with? Every year, Congress makes thousands of changes to tax laws. And no one can guess what will happen in 2013 if the 2001 and 2003 rate cuts expire. There is an irresistible

No matter the cause, always stay well hydrated to help keep your vocal cords moist. And use a humidifier at home. If your chronic laryngitis is due to irritation, then it will improve if you reduce your exposure to whatever substance is affecting your vocal cords. If your condition is due to voice overuse, avoid long bouts of shouting or uninterrupted talking. Also consider voice therapy, which teaches you to speak in ways that won’t injure your vocal cords.

temptation for politicians to “do something” whenever real or imagined problems appear. The number of on-the-fly programs in recent years (from attacks on unpaid internships to Cash for Clunkers) has been astounding. This uncertainty kills job creation. If you cannot tell what will happen next week, next month, next year, why make a significant commitment? The next law or executive order might make a mockery of your plans. America faces a humongous debt, and its trajectory is upward. If nothing changes,

Military families and mental health: understanding and resources

Today’s service men and women are facing particularly challenging circumstances. Many soldiers have been deployed several times to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, often serving in prolonged combat operations. Army Secretary John McHugh recently told Congress that, for perhaps the first time in history, there are more than 50,000 soldiers in uniform who have had at least four deployments, and some have even served 10 or more. The full impact of multiple deployments is still unknown. A recent study by the National Institute on Drug Abuse reveals growing trends in a range of mental health issues, as well as prescription drug and alcohol abuse, among soldiers and veterans. A 2012 report from the U.S. Army Public Health Command found that, since the

start of the Iraq War in 2003, the rate of suicide among U.S. Army soldiers has increased. This coincides with a rise in other conditions including depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. “Our men and women in unifor m are making the world a better place and their contributions are invaluable,” said Joseph Hullett, a Vietnam-era Marine Corp veteran and senior medical director of clinical strategy for OptumHealth’s behavioral health business. “But many soldiers, veterans and their families may have trouble recognizing the signs of a mental health condition or may even be afraid or embarrassed to reach out. “A mental health condition is not a weakness and it’s nothing to be ashamed of,” said Hullett. “The good news is there is help avail-

able to support soldiers and veterans so they can enjoy a full, healthy life.” Hullett of fers military families tips for recognizing a mental health condition and knowing when it may be time to seek help: * Signs of depression: Depression often manifests itself in feelings of hopelessness, lack of interest in the things you once loved, and having trouble sleeping or sleeping too much. * Signs of anxiety: Anxiety is marked by needless worrying, indecisiveness, difficulty concentrating, irritability and physical symptoms such as sweating, heart pounding and

the whole budget would be consumed by interest payments. No politician wants that — if only because there’ll be no money to buy votes. How will the problem be dealt with? Higher taxes? Massive inflation? Some combination? Where does that leave someone today who might, in a more stable policy environment, be eager to launch some big, long-term investment project? In the dark, that’s where. Economist John B. Taylor of the Hoover Institution summed it up aptly: “Unpredictable economic policy — massive fiscal ‘stimulus’ and ballooning debt, the Federal Reserve’s quantitative easing with multiyear near-zero interest rates, and regulatory uncertainty due to Obamacare and the Dodd-Frank financial reforms — is the main cause of persistent high unemployment and our feeble recovery.” Historian Robert Higgs of the Independent Institute calls it “regime uncertainty.” We should have learned the lesson during the Great Depression. Today’s problems are nowhere close to the 1930s, but there is a similarity in Franklin Roosevelt’s policy fog. Higgs writes: “The insufficiency of private invest-

ment from 1935 through 1940 reflected a pervasive uncertainty among investors about the security of their property rights in their capital and its prospective returns. ... The willingness of businesspeople to invest requires a sufficiently healthy state of ‘business confidence,’ and the Second New Deal ravaged the requisite confidence ... .” The solution? Taylor finds it in the writing of Nobel laureate F.A. Hayek: the rule of law. “Stripped of all technicalities,” Hayek wrote in “The Road to Serfdom,” “this means that government in all its actions is bound by rules fixed and announced beforehand — rules which make it possible to foresee with fair certainty how the authority will use its coercive powers in given circumstances and to plan one’s individual affairs on the basis of this knowledge.” If we are ever to get out of this hole the politicians have dug, we must disabuse them of the conceit that they improve our lives by spending more, guaranteeing investments or “jumpstarting” industries. Only when politicians butt out, leaving us with simple, predictable rules, can the economy grow for us all. John Stossel is host of “Stossel” on the Fox Business Network.

Though hoarseness may seem like a minor inconvenience, it’s important to avoid the factors that irritate your larynx. If you don’t, you may develop small nodules or polyps on your vocal cords that can cause permanent hoarseness and may need to be surgically removed. That surgery is typically quite successful.

Bess Webre Tally

On Monday, June 4, 2012, Bess Tally passed peacefully into the arms of her Savior Jesus Christ. Bessie Irene Sandoz was born on a lovely day in New Orleans. Bess was raised in New Orleans, attended Catholic schools and graduated high school with honors. She married James Oliver Webre in New Orleans. Two children resulted from

OBITUARIES that union, Dianne and James Jr. While her children were growing up, Bess was active in several volunteer causes including PTA, March of Dimes and Meals on Wheels. Later the family moved to Dallas, where Jim was employed as an executive vice president for Eli Lilly. Upon retirement, Bess and Jim moved to San Diego. Jim passed away in 1993. Bess was always very active in her church. She was a lector and chalice bearer and was known for her special talent for pulling together receptions and luncheons for special occasions. It was while serving as a lector that she met her beloved (the Rev.) Bob Tally at St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church. As Bess and Bob got to know each other, Bess shared stories about her growing up years. She said, “When I was a young girl I wanted to be a nun; but then I discovered boys!” Bob proposed to Bess on Christmas Eve 1996 and when he asked her to marry him she responded, “Sure.” She had thought that Bob was kidding her. One of Bess’ loves was the theater. She worked as a volunteer at the Old Globe Theater in San Diego, working in the costume shop and various other capacities as a longtime member of the Globe Guilders auxiliary. She was also very active working in St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church thrift store. Bess loved the Lord and loved serving him in the church. She developed Alzheimer’s near the end of her life, but was blessed to know Bob and her daugh-

Memorial services are scheduled for 11 a.m., Saturday, June 9, 2012, at Traylor Gym in Capitan, for Lowell C. (L.C.) Cozzens, 90, who passed away on June 2, 2012, in Roswell. L.C. was born Nov. 18, 1921, in Tulia, Texas, to Seymour “Primo” Cozzens and Sallie Goode Cozzens. The family moved to the Nogal Mesa area in 1924. He attended public school in Capitan, where he was a stellar athlete in all sports.

He attended the University of New Mexico on a basketball scholarship, where he lettered and was named to the All Border Conference basketball team in 1947. In 1943, while at UNM, Cozzens joined the United States Marine Corps and served in the Pacific Theater during World War II. He returned to UNM and graduated in 1947 with a degree in education. He later obtained a Master of Arts, also from UNM. Following graduation, L.C. taught social studies and physical education and coached basketball and football in the Lovington School District for 10 years. He was a coach of the 1951 State Champion football team. Also in 1951, he was recalled to active duty in the Marine Corps during the Korean conflict. He married Mary Lou Cooper in December 1952, in Lovington. In 1959, the Cozzens family moved to Dora, where L.C. was superintendent for six years. During this time he passed his first bond issue and rebuilt the Dora schools. In 1965, Mr. Cozzens was named the Portales Municipal Schools business manager, and in 1968 became the Portales superintendent, serving 17 years before retiring in 1985. While in Portales, he passed bonds to renovate every school in the district. Cozzens returned to education in 1987 when he was the interim superintendent of the Capitan schools for six months. L.C. was a founding member of the New Mexico Coalition of School Administrators and was inducted

later. “I started writing every day. I never stopped.” Many of his stories were fueled by the nightmares he suffered as a child growing up poor in the Midwest during the Great Depression. At the same time, though, they were tempered by the joy he found upon arriving with his family in glitzy Los Angeles in 1943. Decades later he would still boast of hanging out at film studios and cajoling actors to sign autographs and pose for photos, even once getting 1930s movie queen Jean Harlow to kiss him on the cheek. His writings ranged from horror and mystery to humor and sympathetic stories about the Irish, blacks and Mexican-Americans. Bradbury also scripted John Huston’s 1956 film version of Moby Dick and wrote for “The Twilight Zone” and other television programs, including “The Ray Bradbury Theater,” for which he adapted dozens of his works. He rose to literary fame in 1950 with The Martian Chronicles, a series of intertwined stories that satirized capitalism, racism and superpower tensions as it portrayed Earth colonizers destroying an idyllic Martian civilization. The Martian Chronicles was a Cold War morality tale in which imagined lives on other planets serve as commentary on human behavior on Earth. It has been published in more than 30 languages, was

made into a TV miniseries and inspired a computer game. The Chronicles also prophesized the banning of books, especially works of fantasy. It was a theme Bradbury would take on fully in the 1953 release, Fahrenheit 451. Inspired by the Cold War, the rise of television and the author’s passion for libraries, it was an apocalyptic narrative of nuclear war abroad and empty pleasure at home. It was Bradbury’s only true science-fiction work, according to the author, who said all his other works should have been classified as fantasy. “It was a book based on real facts and also on my hatred for people who bur n books,” he told The Associated Press in 2002. Although involved in many futuristic projects, including the New York World’s Fair of 1964 and the Spaceship Earth display at Walt Disney World in Florida, Bradbury was deeply attached to the past. He refused to drive a car and shunned flying, saying a fatal traffic accident he witnessed as a child left him with a lifelong fear of automobiles. In his younger years he got around by bicycle or rollerskates. Bradbury’s literary style was honed in pulp magazines and influenced by Er nest Hemingway and Thomas Wolfe, and he became the rare science fiction writer treated seriously by the literary world.

Until near the end of his life, Bradbury resisted one of the innovations he helped anticipate: electronic books, likening them to

Ray Bradbury, author of Fahrenheit 451, dies at 91

Ray Bradbury, Jan. 29, 1997.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Ray Bradbury imagined the future, and didn’t always like what he saw. In his books, the science fiction-fantasy master conjured a dark, depressing future where the government used fire departments to burn books in order to hold its people in ignorance and where racial hatred was so pervasive that some people left Earth for other planets. At the same time, his work, just like the author himself, could also be joyful, whimsical and nostalgic, as when he was describing the magic of a Midwestern summer or the innocence and fearlessness of a boy who befriends a houseful of ghosts. Bradbury, who died Tuesday at age 91, said often that all of his stories, no matter how fantastic or frightening they might be,

were metaphors for everyday life and everything it entailed. And they all came from his childhood. For more than 70 years, Bradbury spun tales that appeared in books and magazines, in the movie theater and on the television screen, firing the imaginations of generations of children, college kids and grown-ups across the world. Years later, the sheer volume and quality of his work would surprise even him. In many ways, he was always that 12-year-old boy who was inspired to become a writer after a chance meeting with a carnival magician called Mr. Electrico who, to Bradbury’s delight, tapped him with his sword and said, “Live forever!” “I decided that was the greatest idea I had ever heard,” Bradbury said

DeShazer says an Aurora officer took the photo last week after stopping the vehicle for making an improper turn. The officer found that the toddler, a 14-year-old passenger, and the driver weren’t wearing seat belts. Police say the driver was ticketed.

NCAA SOFTBALL World Series finals Game 3 Alabama vs. Oklahoma, late



EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The oldest coach to win a Super Bowl will get at least three more shots at adding to his total. Tom Coughlin signed a two-year contract extension through the 2014 season on Wednesday with the New York Giants. The 65year-old Coughlin, who led the team to its second Super Bowl under him in February, has coached the Giants since 2004. His contract was in its final year. “It has always been my belief that it is an honor and a privilege to be the head coach of the New York Giants,” said Coughlin. “I’m thankful to (co-owners) John Mara and Steve Tisch and their families for their support and the recognition of what our players and coaches have accomplished. And I’m grateful for the working relationship Jerry Reese and I have. We’ve got a lot of work left to do.” Coughlin became the oldest coach with a Super Bowl title this year, and also took the Giants to the 2007 title. New York beat New England in the Super Bowl both times. Overall, Coughlin is 8257 with the Giants. He also went 72-64 in eight seasons with Jacksonville, an expansion team he helped build from scratch. Last season was one of the roughest for the Giants and Coughlin, who stood at 7-7 and needed to win their final two games to get into the playoffs. They beat the Jets and Cowboys to win the NFC East, then defeated Atlanta, Green Bay, San Francisco and the Patriots for the title. “Tom is a winner and he’s a fighter,” Reese said. “And I enjoy and appreciate working with him. From where I sit, I couldn’t ask for more in a head coach.” Coughlin’s 154 total victories tie him with Hall of Famer Marv Levy for 17th on the NFL’s career list. His 12 postseason victories tie him with former Pittsburgh coach Bill Cowher for the sixth-highest total in NFL history. “Tom is the right person in the right job at the right time,” Giants co-owner Steve Tisch said.

Ruidoso Futurity: Previewing the field Section

Ty Warren shows up ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Ty Warren just returned to the field and already he’s taking shots at quarterbacks. Playfully, of course. And from the safety of a podium. Since the Denver Broncos defensive lineman once played with Tom Brady in New England and now has Peyton Manning running the show in the Mile High City, Warren was asked where he stood on the QB debate. As in, who’s better under center. “Manning, all day, man,” Warren said, laughing. “What do you want me to say? That’s my teammate!” Warren was actually a surprise visitor on Wednesday after agreeing to a restructured deal in time to join his teammates on the field for voluntary workouts. Lately, Warren hasn’t seen a lot of the field, sitting out 2010 with a hip injury while with the Patriots and missing all of last season in Denver when he had surgery to repair his torn right triceps.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Kevin Durant had 34 points and 14 rebounds while playing all of regulation for the first time all season, and the Oklahoma City Thunder claimed a spot in the NBA finals by beating the San Antonio Spurs 107-99 on Wednesday night. Russell Westbrook added 25 points for the Thunder, who trailed Game 6 of the Western Conference finals by 18 in the first half and erased a 15-point halftime deficit before pulling ahead to stay in the fourth. Durant grabbed the final rebound, dribbled the ball across halfcourt and raised his right fist to celebrate with a sold-out crowd. The franchise will play for the NBA title for the first time since 1996, before relocating from Seattle. Tony Parker had 29 points and 12 assists for San Antonio, but only eight of the points and two assists came in the second half. Tim Duncan chipped in 25 points and 14 rebounds, and Stephen Jackson scored 23. Game 1 of the NBA finals will be Tuesday night in Oklahoma City against either Boston or Miami. The Celtics lead that series 3-2 and can earn a trip to the finals with a win at home in Game 6 on Thursday night. The Thunder took the lead for good early in the fourth quarter, getting nine of their first 13 points on free throws as the fouls started

Derek Fisher and James Harden hit 3-pointers in a three-possession span to increase the lead to 99-93 with 3:13 remaining, and Oklahoma City held on from there. Jackson, who had made his previous six 3-pointers, and Parker both missed 3s that would have gotten the Spurs within 103-102 in the final minute.

Rafael Nadal returns a ball during his win in the quarterfinals of the French Open at Roland Garros, Wednesday.


PARIS (AP) — It was about time Rafael Nadal faced some sort of test at the French Open. Not that this one lasted all that long or was all that taxing. Still, after dropping a total of 19 games through his first four matches — the fewest at Roland Garros in 30 years — Nadal finally found himself in an evenas-can-be set at the outset of his quarterfinal against 12th-seeded Nicolas Almagro. While Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer have been forced to come back from two-set deficits in Paris, this qualified as a tight spot for Nadal. They went to a tiebreaker, and when Almagro’s backhand return of a 121 mph serve landed out to cede the set, Nadal leaned forward and yelled, “Come on!” Maybe it signaled excitement. Perhaps relief. This much was clear, in case See FRENCH, Page B2

Durant celebrated even before the final buzzer, hugging his family seated courtside after a foul was called with 14 seconds remaining. The Thunder became the NBA’s 15th team to come back from an 02 deficit in a seven-game series, doing it against a team that had won 20 games in a row.

anyone harbored any doubt: Nadal can summon his best play when he needs it. Moving closer to a record seventh French Open championship, Nadal reached the semifinals by beating Almagro 7-6 (4), 62, 6-3 to improve to 50-1 at the clay-court Grand Slam tournament. “I played well. I applied my strategy. I tried to do my best,” Almagro said. “But he was at such a high level.” As he always is at Roland Garros. This year, though, Nadal’s level has been even higher than usual. Not only has he won all 15 sets he’s played, but get this: Nadal has won 60 of his 61 service games so far, 54 in a row since getting broken in the second set of his first-round victory over Simone Bolelli of Italy. He’s saved 16 of 17 break points, including going 4 for 4 against Almagro. “If I’d not lost any set and not lost my serve, it would have been a miracle,” the second-seeded Nadal said.

“It’s just impossible to achieve that.” The next player who will try to stop him is No. 6 David Ferrer, who, like Nadal and Almagro, is from Spain. Ferrer reached his third major semifinal, but first at Roland Garros, by eliminating No. 4 Andy Murray 6-4, 6-7 (3), 6-3, 62 in a match interrupted by a half-hour rain delay early in the third set. Ferrer recalled watching on TV when countrymen Sergi Bruguera, Juan Carlos Ferrero and Carlos Moya won French Open trophies. “This tour nament, I think, is very special for all the Spanish players — and also for me,” Ferrer said. Would be even better, of course, if he can get past his pal Nadal, who has won 15 of their 19 career meetings. “Winning a match against Rafa is almost impossible,” Ferrer acknowledged. “He is in such good shape.” The other men’s semifinal Friday will be No. 1ranked Djokovic against No. 3 Federer.

Celtics return home with chance to close out Heat

BOSTON (AP) — LeBron James saw his share of disappointment in Boston when he was with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Then he joined the Miami Heat, and things only got worse. Miami has lost seven of eight on the parquet floor since James arrived to form a superteam modeled after the new Big Three that hung the Celtics’ unprecedented 17th NBA championship banner. The Heat will need a victory here in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals on Thursday night to avoid a fourth straight loss to the Celtics, a fifth straight loss in Boston and a second straight year of failed promise from the trio of James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh. “We plan to win the ballgame. We’ve got to win. That’s all we’ve got to do,” Wade said Wednesday before the Heat boarded a plane to return to Boston. “Can’t listen to the noise. I’m not. I’m sure our team is not. We’re just focused on winning this ballgame.” It was in Boston that James said goodbye to Cleveland, ripping off his jersey as he left the court after Game 6 of the 2010 Eastern Conference semifinals after the Celtics spoiled the two-time defending NBA MVP’s best chance to win a title with his hometown team. But Miami has had even bigger struggles in Boston, winning just once on the parquet since Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen joined forces. The Celtics knocked the Heat out of the playoffs in the first round of the 2010 playoffs, one series before eliminating James’ Cavaliers. (The Heat did eliminate the Celtics from the playoffs last year, but they needed just one win in Boston.) In all, Miami has lost 15 of its last 16 regular-season games in Boston. “Why would you think about that? What does it do for you? Is it going to change anything? No,” Wade said. “You’ve got to go out and try to play — each game is its own. You can’t say, ‘Oh, well, we’re down one point and we’ve lost 15 out of 16 here. We’re not going to win.’ “It doesn’t work that way.” Miami finished seven games ahead of the Celtics in the lockout-shortened regular season to earn home-court advantage, then gave it back on Tuesday night when Boston

bidding to become the first man to win four consecutive major titles since Rod Laver 43 years ago. Federer wants to add to his record 16 Grand Slam titles and end a drought of more than two years without one. Ferrer and Federer are both 30 — the last two of the record 37 thirtysomethings who were in the draw — and it’s the first time two French Open semifinalists were at least that old since Laver and Ken Rosewall in 1969. It hasn’t happened at any Grand Slam tournament since Andre Agassi and Wayne Ferreira were in the final four at the 2003 Australian Open. Against Murray, Ferrer was the picture of perpetual motion, chasing down shots to extend points time after time. “He is so solid, so consistent,” Murray said, “that if you’re not converting your opportunities, it turns to many long games, and then the pressure can build on your serve.” He was speaking about Ferrer, but might as well have been discussing

beat the Heat 94-90 to win Game 5. That means the Celtics just need to win at home on Thursday to advance to the NBA finals for the third time in five years. “I know how much pain this team has given me over the years,” James said. “I think I guess it’s only right that we will be going up there in an elimination game. In order for us to keep our season going, we have to win in their building.” That would force the series back to Miami for a decisive seventh game, giving the Celtics a fallback if they should falter at home. But they’re not interested in that. “We have one home game left, and that’s it in this series,” coach Doc Rivers said Wednesday. “We have to understand that, and we have to come with that sense of urgency. Our guys understand that, and I think so does Miami.” The Celtics would also like to avoid a Game 7 so they can rest their banged-up regulars, including thirtysomethings Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. Allen, who missed the first two games of the postseason because of bone spurs in his right ankle, left Game 5 in the third quarter when his ankle stiffened but returned in the fourth and sank two free throws with 14 seconds left to give Boston a four-point lead. “He just said it’s locked on him again,” Rivers said. “That’s happened a couple of times. He needed our doctor to maneuver it ... so he can run again.” Rondo dislocated his left elbow in last year’s second-round playoff series against the Heat. He appeared to injure the same arm early in Tuesday’s game, adjusting the sleeve he wears on it and seeking assistance from the Celtics’ trainer. But he finished with seven points, 13 assists and six rebounds — one of them when he slapped a loose ball away from James to Mickael Pietrus for a 3-pointer. Rivers said he didn’t know what was wrong with Rondo’s elbow — and didn’t want to know. Bosh returned after missing the nine playoff games with a lower abdominal strain from the opener of the conference semifinals against Indiana. He had nine points and seven rebounds in 14-plus minutes but was not on the floor down the stretch when the Celtics came back to win 94-90. Bosh said Wednesday that he is “99 percent” and that he did not ask to be held out in the fourth last night. “I think he’ll be able to handle a bigger load of minutes,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “It’ll be based more on how he feels during the game.”


Cowboys’ Ware still gets occasional neck stingers

IRVING, Texas (AP) — DeMarcus Ware has never missed a game in his seven years with the Dallas Cowboys, even after a scary head-first collision three seasons ago. Only six days after that crushing blow in a December 2009 game against San Diego, Ware was back on the field in a dominating performance in a victory over previously undefeated and eventual Super Bowl champion New Orleans. But the six-time Pro Bowl linebacker said Wednesday that he still gets occasional neck stingers after contact in games. Ware sometimes gets a tingling sensation down his arm and it will go numb for a couple of seconds. “Then I’ll have all my strength, and it’s like all right, wait a little while, and go back out there and keep playing,” Ware said. “But sometimes that can take away from maybe one play or a big play you can make, or two plays in the game where it’s key situation when you know you’re wanting to be out there and playing.” Ware said he had never experienced such stingers before that game when his head rammed into the leg of a Chargers lineman. There were some anxious moments while Ware was immobilized on the field and his facemask removed from his helmet

before he was taken off the field on a stretcher and then hospitalized for several hours. Though he didn’t start the following game against the Saints, the only one of his 112 regular season games without starting, Ware had a sack and forced fumble with 6 seconds left that clinched the victory. When Ware missed last week’s workout that was open to reporters, the Cowboys described his absence as because of a strained neck. Ware said Wednesday that he was getting X-rays and other tests that he called precautionary. “I’m not worried about it,” Ware said. “Really just make sure everything is all right and checking up and making sure it doesn’t happen this year. You never can be 100 percent saying it’s not going to happen when you’re out there playing aggressive, but you’ve got to take the precautionary things in the offseason to make sure that it doesn’t happen again, and that’s what I was doing.” Ware, who has 99 1⁄2 career sacks, said the tests showed everything was good and normal, and that he felt great. The linebacker said the stingers always go away in the offseason, but come back sometimes during the season. He said everything is good now, partly because of the workouts without pads. “It’s just going to be that way, you’ve just got to find some way to work through it and just do precautionary stuff,” he said. “At the end of (last season), it flared up a little bit, and sometimes I would come out of the game, get little stingers here and there, but you’ve just got to work through it.” Ware said he has been fitted for new pads, including those for his shoulder and neck. He believes that will help in the future. “I think about long-term health all the time, because you know with football, your body takes a bruising and just got to get out there and just play anyway,” he said. “When your body tells you you can’t play anymore, that’s when you’ve got to stop and just can’t keep doing it.” Notes: Fullback Lawrence Vickers left practice briefly Wednesday because of ants in his pants. Vickers, who is allergic to ants, went to the locker room with a trainer. He got rid of the ants, took an allergy shot and returned to practice without any further problems. ...

Consolidated suit expected in NFL concussion case

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Lawyers for former NFL players plan to file a single lawsuit Thursday consolidating scores of complaints brought against the league in the past year accusing the NFL of concealing information linking football-related head injuries to permanent neurological problems. Plaintiffs lawyers say more than 80 pending lawsuits are consolidated in the “master complaint” being filed in Philadelphia. They involve thousands of retired players. A federal judicial panel has consolidated the cases before U.S. District Judge Anita Brody. The lawsuits aim to hold the NFL responsible for medical monitoring and treatment of the veteran players. The plaintiffs include Mary Ann

No. 21 Sara Errani of Italy. Sharapova, who is trying to complete a career Grand Slam, beat No. 23 Kaia Kanepi of Estonia 6-2, 6-3 Wednesday, and Kvitova edged 142nd-ranked qualifier Yaroslava Shvedova 36, 6-2, 6-4. “What girl doesn’t like Paris? Great shopping,

great everything. I mean, great food, great people and culture. I absolutely love it here,” Sharapova said. “The more I come, the more I shop, and the thinner the wallet gets. But that’s OK, right?” A French Open winner’s check of about $1.5 million wouldn’t hurt.

Easterling, the widow of former Atlanta Falcons safety Roy Easterling. The complaint comes less than two months after the 62-year-old Easterling shot himself at their Richmond, Va., home. An NFL spokesman did not immediately return messages Wednesday. The league has vehemently denied the accusations in the lawsuits in the past. The problem of concussions in the NFL has moved steadily into a litigation phase for about a year. According to an AP review of 81 lawsuits filed through May 25, the plaintiffs include 2,138 players who say the NFL did not do enough to inform them about the dangers of head injuries. The total number of plaintiffs in those cases is 3,356, which includes players, spouses and other relatives or representatives. Some of the plaintiffs are named in more than one complaint, but the AP count does not include duplicated names in the total.

Devils win to force Game 5 in Stanley Cup finals

LOS ANGELES (AP) — When Adam Henrique decided to face playoff elimination by shaving his beard into a bristly mustache, the New Jersey Devils realized their remarkable rookie isn’t exactly buckling under the pressure of the Stanley Cup finals. Martin Brodeur probably has pads older than his teammate, and the NHL’s winningest goalie was acutely aware of the stakes riding on his every save in Game 4. After the 22-year -old clutch scorer and the 40year-old goalie teamed up to put the Stanley Cup back in its crate, the Devils headed home still nursing the chance of a comeback for all ages. Henrique scored the tiebreaking goal with 4:29 to play, Brodeur made 21 saves, and New Jersey beat the Los Angeles Kings 3-1 on Wednesday night to avoid a sweep in the finals. After making a series of stunning saves in a performance that evoked his greatest moments, Brodeur said he believes in the Devils’ comeback chances “more than yesterday.” “You know, I think we wanted to make them jump on a plane and come to New Jersey,” Brodeur said. “We had to go anyway. Might as

Given his injury-riddled past, the team was hoping Warren would take a pay cut. He understood the business decision, saying, “Ultimately, we met at middle ground and got the deal done.” No hurt feelings, either. Now, there’s just an interest in making up for lost snaps. Hardly surprising, he feels fresher than he has in quite a while. Then again, he hasn’t started a game since December 2009. “As far as my body feeling good, I haven’t felt this good — I don’t know, since I was bigger than everybody else in high school, and I could go play a game and dominate and walk away without a scratch on me,” Warren said. “It’s been a long time since I felt as good as I feel.” Warren signed a twoyear, $8 million deal last August, shortly after his release from the Patriots. But drawing a big paycheck last season for sitting on the sideline left a sour taste and he feels like he has a little something to prove. “The past couple of years, unfortunately you can’t control that stuff,” he said. “I don’t go into a deal saying, ‘I have to go

well get a game over there.” Game 5 is Saturday night in Newark, N.J. Patrik Elias and Ilya Kovalchuk also scored third-period goals as the Eastern Conference champion Devils disappointed Los Angeles’ long-suffering fans who have waited nearly 45 years for their franchise’s first championship. A few minutes after Drew Doughty tied it for the Kings, Henrique scored his third enormous goal of the postseason, taking a pass from David Clarkson and rocketing a wrist shot past Jonathan Quick, the Kings’ nearly unbeatable goalie. The Calder Trophy finalist ended two of the Devils’ first three playoff series with overtime goals, and he kept New Jersey alive with his latest. “It’s fun. This is where every kid dreams of playing one day,” Henrique said. “We know it’s going to be a tough task to come back, (but) there’s no quit in the group in here. We know we can do it. We know we can put four together and come back.” Quick stopped 21 shots for the Kings, but lost his streak of nearly 139 shutout minutes right when he probably could have wrapped up the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP. The Kings had have hip surgery’ or come into Broncos camp saying, ‘I’m going to tear my triceps.’ “I definitely hated fact that I wasn’t able to do anything for the way I was compensated. I do have a conscience, in that sense.” For Warren, the decision to stay put boiled down to this — his family. “If things didn’t work out, was it worth moving my kids back across the country at this point?” the 31-year -old said. “Who knows what amount of money or what the circumstances might have been? I would’ve had to evaluate that, just because of the size of my family and the point my young ladies are at, at this point of their lives.” Warren was the centerpiece of the Broncos’ modest free agency plan last season, but he was injured in early August and had surgery a week later. The team initially held out hope he might be able to return, only to place him on injured reserve in mid-September. “It definitely was a blow,” he said. “I had every intention to come in, earn my spot on the team, make an impact on the team, as I have in years before when I was healthy. “From the time of the injury all the way up until this whole renegotiating deal, even after that, I continued to work. It was

Parker, who had been largely bottled up ever since the Thunder put 6-foot-7 defensive specialist Thabo Sefolosha on him in Game 3, was back at his best right from the start. Parker made seven of his first nine shots, wiggling into the lane for runners and layups while also setting up his teammates.

allowed just one third-period goal in their previous nine games. Kovalchuk added an empty-netter that sent fans streaming forlornly out into a warm evening in Southern California. “We stayed alive,” said Elias, who has two of the Devils’ five goals in the series. “Marty had to work hard, but he gave us a chance. All we’ve got to do is keep playing hard.” With a golden chance for a Hockeywood ending, Los Angeles dropped to 15-3 in its spectacular postseason run, failing to win the title on its first try — and in its 200th playoff game, no less — in front of the faithful fans who have never seen the Stanley Cup. The Kings should head to New Jersey with confidence: They have won all 10 of their road playoff games this spring and 12 straight overall — both NHL postseason records. But after never trailing in the Stanley Cup finals, the Kings never led in Game 4. “I think (wrapping it up) was definitely on our minds, but they found a way to get a late goal,” Kings captain Dustin Brown said. “We’ve just got to hit the reset button. We’ve been in this situation now four times in the playoffs, and we’ve always come

a bump in the road. When you have perspective, you can overcome that stuff.” Ever think about calling it quits? “I never thought about the “R” word or anything like that,” he said, referring to retirement. Warren will now be part of a rotation of defensive tackles that will include Justin Bannan, Kevin Vickerson and rookie Derek Wolfe. He’s also eager to create more opportunities for the defensive end tandem of Elvis Dumervil and Von Miller to rush the quarterback. “I watched film with those guys although I wasn’t on the field — I pretty much was there right along on the whole ride with them without being on the field,” Warren said. “I’m definitely excited about having those guys on the edge because, personally, it’s been a long time.” Then there’s this: After years of chasing after Manning, Warren is elated to be his teammate. “When I found out that he came here, I was on alert just like everybody else was on alert,” he said. “Just for the simple fact that his track record, it speaks for itself. ... And let’s be honest, a guy like that makes your life easy. He makes everybody’s life easy.”

Parker had a hand in the Spurs’ first 12 baskets, making seven on his own and assisting on the other five, before Kawhi Leonard and Jackson followed his threepoint play by nailing back-to-back 3-pointers for a 34-16 advantage in the final 2 minutes of the first quarter. The Spurs were 9 for 15 on 3-pointers in the first half, many of them wide open, and maintained their lead right up until Durant’s 3-pointer with 0.4 seconds left got Oklahoma City within 63-48 at halftime.

Vancouver and Phoenix also won Game 4 before losing Game 5. The Devils became just the sixth of 26 teams in finals history to force a Game 5 after falling behind 0-3.

Sandusky, a 68-year old former assistant football coach, is charged with sexually abusing 10 boys over a 15-year span. Picking the jury took less than two days, moving along more swiftly than some had expected, given that the rural area is rich with Penn State employees, alumni and fans, many of whom have strong opinions about the case. Bellefonte is 12 miles from Penn State’s main campus in State College. The judge, however, said Penn State connections would not automatically disqualify potential jurors as long as they could pledge to be impartial. Eight of the 12 jurors and two of the four alternates have ties to Penn

gone L.A.’s way,” Devils coach Peter DeBoer said. “We finally got rewarded tonight.” After a tight-checking game between two very tight teams, Elias’ rebound goal with 12:04 to play put a hush over Staples Center. But 62 seconds later —and six seconds after Clarkson went off with a questionable boarding penalty — Mike Richards passed Anze Kopitar’s faceoff win to Doughty, who rocketed a long shot past Brodeur for the fourth goal of his breakthrough postseason. But after so many minutes of tight defense, New Jersey won it with a stunning goal in transition: Former Kings forward Alexei Ponikarovsky got the puck State. Some legal experts said jurors with Penn State connections might be inclined to come down hard on Sandusky, blaming him for Paterno’s firing and the damage to the school’s reputation. Or they might take their frustrations out on prosecutors for bringing the case in the first place. St. Vincent College law professor Bruce Antkowiak said the Penn State factor could cut both ways. “In one sense, you worry about, this guy was for many years of his life a hero of that community, an idol,” Antkowiak said, referring to Sandusky’s role as founder of an acclaimed charity for youngsters. “On the other hand, there’s also the consideration that there are people who believe this guy betrayed so much of what gave this institution and this area so much of the character and innocence that we love, that he has besmirched it in such a profound way.” On the list of potential

The Thunder stormed right back with an 11-2 run to start the third quarter and eventually pulled ahead after Durant’s 3pointer from the top of the key made it 7977 with 1:41 left in the period. After shooting 55 percent in the first half, San Antonio went only 7 for 22 in the third quarter and clung to an 81-80 lead heading into the fourth. San Antonio missed nine of 11 3-pointers in the second half. Notes: Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, whose request for his team to play nasty

to Clarkson, who found Henrique across the ice for his first goal since ending the Eastern Conference finals with an overtime goal. “That’s probably the best feeling I’ve ever had in my whole career,” Clarkson said. “I saw (Henrique) coming, so I got it to him, and the shot was incredible.” The Kings opened their first Stanley Cup finals in 19 years with two tense overtime victories in New Jersey, surviving largely on the brilliance of Quick. Los Angeles then returned home and routed the Devils 4-0 in Game 3 on Monday night, setting the stage for a celebration. But the Devils got into the details, and the Kings must regroup.

witnesses, along with the young men who have accused Sandusky, are Paterno’s widow and son and assistant coach Mike McQueary, who said he saw Sandusky naked in a team shower with a boy more than a decade ago and reported it to Paterno. Pater no was fired in November for not acting more decisively against Sandusky. He died of lung cancer two months later at 85. On Wednesday, defense attorney Joseph Amendola asked again for a delay in the trial, alleging that the judge’s gag order was violated by an ABC report that said the accuser identified in court papers as Victim 4 would be the first witness. Judge John Cleland denied the request. Amendola arrived with Sandusky at the courthouse in the morning and told reporters he was confident the nine jurors picked at that time would give them a “fair shake.” Lead prosecutor Joseph McGettigan said: “So far, so good.”

It seems extremely wasteful to use a bag only one time. What do you suggest? Cindy D., via email

It’s an interesting question. The answer is yes and no. You should not reuse bags that have held RAW meat, fish or poultry. Items COULD contaminate the next item, so don’t use them for food that may get contaminated. Heloise

Regulator: JPMorgan had ‘inadequate’ risk controls Roswell Daily Record

WASHINGTON (AP) — A top federal regulator says JPMorgan Chase had weak controls in place to contain risk in its investment division that suffered a $2 billion-plus trading loss. U.S. Comptroller of the Currency Thomas Curry told a Senate panel on Wednesday that the nation’s largest bank began reducing the amount of hedging it was doing to minimize potential losses at the end of 2011. Curry’s agency is examining JPMorgan’s risk-containment policies in the weeks before it suffered the trading loss this spring. Curry told the Senate Banking Committee that “inadequate risk management” was the problem. He said his agency is conducting an extensive review that “will focus on where break-

downs or failures occurred.” Senators pressed Curry to explain why regulators weren’t able to detect the risks that led to the loss earlier. Did the Comptroller’s Office, which had 65 examiners onsite at JPMorgan’s offices, “screw up” in monitoring the bank, asked Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J. “We’re going to critically look at that question,” Curry responded. “It will be a critical self-review.” The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, which is part of the Treasury Department, oversees about 2,000 banks. JPMorgan’s $2 billionplus trading loss has renewed calls from lawmakers and Obama administration of ficials for tougher regulation.

The misstep at JPMorgan has revived debate over the so-called Volcker Rule, which would prevent banks from trading for their own profit. The idea is to protect depositors’ money, which is insured by the government. Regulators are completing work on the rule, which is scheduled to take effect in July. But banks will have until July 2014 to meet its requirements. Dimon has been among the most vocal critics of the Volcker Rule.

And the Securities and Exchange Commission is reviewing what the bank told investors about its finances and the risks it took weeks before suffering the loss. Regulators say the loss underscores the need to tighten rules mandated under the 2010 financial overhaul law.

AgPower FP I, LLC, 9360 Station Street, Suite 375, Lone Tree, CO has submitted an air quality permit application to the Air Quality Bureau (AQB), New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) for an air quality permit to construct the Pecos Valley Renewable Power Plant. The application file has been assigned Permit No. 4772 and TEMPO Agency Interest ID No. 31430. The exact location of the facility will be at latitude 33 deg, 17 min, 54.14 sec and longitude -104 deg, 24 min, 42.6 sec, approximately 8 miles N. of Dexter in Chaves County, New Mexico.

The proposed construction will consist of conversion of biogas to generate electricity, utilizing four internal combustion engines.

Total air pollutant emissions to the atmosphere are estimated to be approximately: Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) at 96.6 tons per year (tpy); Carbon Monoxide (CO) at 254.2 tpy; Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) at 94.1 tpy; Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) at 105.7 tpy; Total Suspended Particulate Matter (TSP) at 20.3 tpy, Particulate Matter 10 microns or less (PM10) at 19.2 tpy, and Particulate Matter 2.5 microns or less (PM2.5) at 16.2 tpy, Formaldehyde at 36.4 tpy; Total HAPs at 36.4 tpy; and Ammonia (a NM TAP) at 3.6 tpy. The facility is a minor, < 100,000 tpy CO2e, source of green house gas emissions. These emission estimates could change slightly during the course of the Department's review of the application. The NMED has conducted a preliminary review of the information submitted with the permit application. The preliminary review and applicant’s analysis of ambient air quality impacts indicates that the facility’s air emissions will meet the ambient air quality standards for NOx, CO, and SO2. A full review will evaluate the estimated emission rates for the pollutants listed above and the air quality analysis to determine compliance with the associated ambient air standards and requirements. The NMED has conducted a preliminary review of the information submitted with the permit application and found that only volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are being emitted due to this construction. VOCs are a pre-cursor to ozone. Pre-construction air dispersion modeling is not required for VOCs and ozone. To determine compliance with national ambient air quality standards, NMED monitors ambient ozone concentrations. A full review will evaluate the estimated emission rates and determine compliance with air quality regulations. Based on the applicant’s analysis, a preliminary determination is that this facility will comply with the requirements of Title 20, New Mexico Administrative Code (NMAC), Chapter 2, Parts 3, 7, 61, 72, 73, 75, 77, 78, and 82; 40 CFR 50; 40 CFR 60 Subparts A and JJJJ; 40 CFR 63 Subparts A and ZZZZ; and the New Mexico Air Quality Control Act. Therefore, the preliminary intent of NMED is to issue the air quality permit on or before September 9, 2012. This source is a minor source according to 20.2.74 NMAC, PSD.

To ensure compliance with state and federal air regulations, the permit is expected to include conditions that limit the emissions and conditions that will require record keeping and reporting to the Department.

The permit application is available for review in electronic or hard copy at the Air Quality Bureau Office, 1301 Siler Road, Building B, Santa Fe, New Mexico. To arrange viewing of this application contact Teri Waldron, at 505-476-4355 or The permit application is also available at the NMED Roswell Office, located at 1914 W. 2nd Street, Roswell, NM 88201 for public review.

All interested persons have thirty (30) days from the date this notice is published, to notify the Department in writing of their interest in the permit application. The written comments should refer to the company name, site name and Permit No. (or send a copy of this notice along with your comments). The written comments shall state the nature of the issues raised and how it relates to the requirements of applicable state and federal air quality regulations and the Clean Air Act. The written comments should be mailed to Melinda Owens, New Mexico Environment Dept., Air Quality Bureau, Permit Section, 1301 Siler Road, Building B, Santa Fe, New Mexico 87507-3113. The Department will notify all persons, who have provided written comments, as to when and where the Department’s analysis may be reviewed. Although all written comments will be made part of the public record, any person who does not express interest in writing prior to the end of this first thirty (30) day period will not receive such notification.

If the Department receives written public comment prior to the end of the Department’s thirty (30) day public notice, the Department’s analysis will be made available for review for thirty (30) days at the NMED district or field office nearest to the source before the permit will be issued. Written comments on the analysis or permit application may be submitted to the Department during this second thirty (30) day period or at any time before the permit is issued or denied. Questions or comments not intended to be part of the public record can be directed to Melinda Owens at 505-476-4341. General information about air quality and the permitting process can be found at the Air Quality Bureau’s web site.
